This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
It really bothered me that my sim loses his hair whenever he changes into his career outfit. And since I'd like him to wear his fedora with alternate clothes, I made him a new hat hair. It's a combination of a mesh of my own and EA's fedora. And just so my sim could have a consistent hairstyle I also made a non-hat version.

This non hat version looks good with a casual getup and the fedora adds a certain formality to the sim. Simple and versatile.

Teens to elders can use these hairs and has fat morphs.

EDIT: After spending a day not worrying about it, my mind was clear enough to figure out the problem. The hair is now shower-proof, hooray! The hat version however is not, but as long as you don't use the latter as the starting hair you are golden.

Problems with the hair: The hair reverts back to a Maxis default when the sim is nude. This is a TSRW probem. I spent days trying to make the hair with Daboobs so that it's shower-proof but every time it ends up with weird shine and shadows and/or has black triangles all over the mesh. TSRW has no problems with my mesh as you can see.

I even tried experimenting with other creators' files that were successfully made with Daboobs and I still ended up with the same results, so I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I'm quite disappointed with myself. Maybe I'll keep experimenting, but constantly hitting a brick wall is very frustrating.

So unfortunately, the only way to fix the naked hair is to use a mod that lets you edit the naked outfit, such as NRAAS Master Controller . At the very least, the hair has fat morphs.
